{Challenge} Sizzix Bigz Die

Posted Image
Shelly here with a challenge you're going to DIE for! Use any Sizzix Bigz die to create a card, embellishment or layout! Here's my example using Sizzix Bigz Die Flower Layers #9Flowers, 3-D #2,
Here's how I created my 6x6 card: I started with a piece of 12"x6" dotted swiss cardstock and folded it in half. I used a 5x5 die to create the black background mat. Next, I cut several pieces of felt, netting, and newsprint brown paper bags and two different Sizzix Bigz Dies to create my three flowers. I used Distress ink on one of the felt flower layers. Use a crop-a-dile to punch a hole through all layers and use a brad to hold it all together. I used glue dots to adhere the felt/paper flowers to the card front. Tie a 6" piece of ribbon into a bow and place upper left. Use circle die cuts from Pea Pod Parts to create layered lower right greeting. Use a small "Thanks" (or whatever is appropriate for your needs) onto the circular journaling spot. Use pop dots to create added dimension.
